I always have a batch of hummus in the fridge to use as a dip, spread and taste enhancer for many dishes!
1 can chickpeas (or 2 cups cooked)
2 cloves garlic (add more if you like!)
2 tbsp tahini
1 1/2 lemons (you need 4 tbsp juice and some zest)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
drizzle of olive oil
pinch of cumin, sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
